I get asked this question so often… How do you stay so motivated? Let me tell you a secret, I am not motivated every day!!

But, what I do have are the following:

  1. Discipline
  2. Good Habits
  3. Commitment
  4. Routine
  5. A passion for what I do

If we are always waiting for motivation, its very likely we wont ever reach our goal. Motivation will always go up and down. Its like a friend who is great company when she turns up but quite often she forgets to call or to come!!

Discipline is something we can work on though. And this can be learnt and practiced. Think of discipline as a reliable friend. Good habits can be created and go hand in hand with commitment and routine. If I know, I am doing that particular class on that particular day, its much easier to stick to.

And then finally, I really do enjoy exercising. I have found the things I enjoy and I do those. I don’t dance as I don’t really enjoy it! I don’t lift heavy weights as thats not the thing that makes me feel good, but I do enjoy moving, working with weights that work for me, sculpting, running, swimming and cycling.

Find what you enjoy and it becomes much easier to create a good habit.

Stop just relying on motivation.
